So I splurged and bought myself Horizon: Zero Dawn last weekend. This game is gorgeous, and it's a really cool concept. I love the amount of world-building that you can find if you take the time to explore and scan everywhere.
My only gripe so far is that the level-up progression is kind of lame, there's only a small handful of skills that actually seem helpful. Also the melee combat is awkward and clunky compared to how amazing and fluid using the bows and slingshots feel.
I have ~25 hours logged, so far I give it an 8.5/10. Hoping that the later half of the game will get more exciting with cooler machines, I have a feeling I'll give it a higher score when I finish it.
